obama of who is trying to steer a middle course. i like to see him steer a little bit more, frankly, even progressive to the progressive side, but compared to where romney is, i think that we have such a clear choice. it looks like the american pink building so as well. basically, more and more people have come to see how corrupted the american political system is, how dysfunctional wall street is, how on equal our society is and how we are not getting out of this trap until we address these issues much more fundamentally than we have. whether we are going to do that or not, i do not know, but the events over the last year showed that we need to. tavis: you reference present obama and governor romney. tomorrow night, wednesday, the first of these four debates, three between mr. romney and mr. obama. tomorrow is the first that we will see them on the same stage. in advance of that debate tomorrow night, yesterday in "the wall street journal" mr. romney had a piece. the piece was titled "a new course for the middle east," but he raises some domestic issues, .

for democrats and for the democratic paraty and certainly for president obama. that is why these laws were passed after the 2010 election when republicans took control of state legislatures and were able to do something in response to the obama election of 2008. tavis: since you mentioned the present, the first debate between mr. obama and mr. romney is behind us. the president is on his own. just weeks ago at the democratic convention he had a nice assist from former president bill clinton. bill clinton has weighed in on this issue. again, it is one thing for you and me to talk about. when bill clinton says something, people start to pay attention. he has weighed in on this and said something i want you to unpack. he has argued that the republicans what the electorate in 2012 to look like the 2010 electorate and not like the 2008 electorate. explain what he meant by thtat. >> if you look at the 2008 electorate, it was a the per se electric, a denver electorate. and it signaled a democrat change in the country and what the electorate will look like going forward in 2016 and beyond. that is

. obama will come face to face in a debate. if you were jim wednesday night, where these issues are concerned, at the economy, how we avoid what has happened already, how we avoid falling into another recession, around those issues, what ought to be debated wednesday night? >> they should be challenged about whether we want a sustainable financial system. will both presidents appoint people to their economic team who will see the economic interest of the people probably? -- broadly? will they appoint regulators who will be independent of wall street? will they support them when they need to make decisions? will this president protect regulators when congress tries to beat up on them? did they recognize the crucial connection between our economic growth and prosperity? tavis: if you were going to appoint regulators and others not connected to wall street without looking for names, where would you look for those types of people? whenever you talk about financial issues, the people who in-depth writing these institutions -- to end up running these institutions, they always seem to
